RoadTrip 2013


I am SO excited about Road Trip ’13, the blogging conference coming to Cincinnati, Ohio October 10th-12th! I’ll be speaking (wow!) for my first time ever and can’t wait to share my knowledge with everyone. I’ll be sharing the stage with some world renowned speakers, and am just in awe over the entire experience. Want more information about the conference? Well, I’ve got it! It’s a new conference to the scene, but it’s going to be the LARGEST technology innovation, cyber branding, social media and blogging event in the US!

From the site:

WHO IS TEACHING:  Speakers and workshops will feature the best and brightest blogging, public relations and social media pros, “Thought Leadership” and “Digital Delivery Mentors” and experts in North America.  These community leaders will be gathering to mentor new and old friends alike.

WHY:  RoadTrip 2013 (to be a semi-annual event) is a hands-on event for anyone curious about making digital delivery systems work for their brands and their space.  Designed much like a rural central school system, RoadTrip 2013 is jam packed with incredible content, inspiring events, networking and hands-on practical workshops that deliver relevant effective teachings for skill sets of all ages. The size of our conference is perfect – full of synergy and opportunity, but intimate enough to personally benefit from the professional development and fulfilling agenda options. If you walk away from RoadTrip 2013 without learning at least 10 new things, then you are probably a zombie.

There are several different ticket options, but BLUE tickets are the only ticket plans that EXCLUDES hotel accommodations.  Silver and up all include hotel in the cost.  In other words, they only have to figure out how to get there! Which is a huge plus. Very few conferences offer this option. Also, you can split up your payments into 3 installments for a more budget friendly option. You can check out what’s included by clicking here. Want to purchase tickets? My discount code will get you $500 off by typing in “DomesticDebacle” without the quotations. This expires on 7/15/2013, so make sure you reserve your ticket soon! If you choose the payment option, the discount will come off the final payment. If you’re planning on going, you can also click here to grab your badge(s).

Now for the giveaway!

Frisch’s $25 Gift Card Giveaway and FREE Big Boy on May 3

Default post image

Frisch’s holds a special place in my heart, so when they recently reached out to me to host a giveaway, I jumped at the chance.While they are providing me with a promotional item to spread the word, it doesn’t change my opinion of them (my way of giving you the disclosure, but it’s a little sappy too).

As a kid, it was an oasis of sorts with one of my favorite relatives. We would go almost every Sunday and order the same thing: a Big Boy, fries and a vanilla Coke.

It’s funny, because now I get the warm fuzzies going there with my daughter. She loves Frisch’s (she actually calls it “Buddy’s”, which is the cutest thing EVER).

So on May 3rd, it’s only appropriate that we celebrate Dave Frisch’s birthday, otherwise known as Founder’s Day! It’s kinda my personal way to say “Thanks for the memories (and good food), Dave!”


What’s even better, is that Frisch’s wants to spend this special day with ALL of us! Visit any Frisch’s on May 3rd dressed as Big Boy and you’ll receive a FREE Big Boy! You can create your own costume or “check” out a free printable costume here. If you want to jump in on the conversation, follow the hashtag on Twitter: #FrischsFoundersDay or join the event on Facebook– you can even invite your friends.

And now for the giveaway! You can win a Frisch’s $25 gift card, by commenting below- What’s your favorite menu item at Frisch’s?

Winner will be chosen by Random.org on Thursday, April 25th at 10:00am. Good luck, and thanks for being a DomesticDebacle.com reader!
